I tried creating some graphs with data tips, based on this example:
I run my program in batch on Windows, SAS 9.3.
Works great - BUT:
I'm sure these things are really simple, but darned if I can figure it out. Can some kind person help?

I don't have 9.3 but 9.2 has an option reached by using Tools>Option>Preferences>Results , uncheck box "View results as generated"
Remember to turn it back on afterwards!
ODS HTML path sets where your output files are going but if you want the graphics in a folder other than that with the HTML then you'll need to work with other options to ensure the references in the HTML point to that folder.

For question #2, you want the "gpath=" option on the ODS HTML statement. From the SAS 9.3 ODS User's Guide:
"specifies the location for all graphics output that is generated while the destination is open. Use this option when you want to write graphics output files to a location different that specified by the PATH= option for markup files."

Thanks, the GPATH= option on the ODS HTML statement lets me put all the graphics files away in a separate subdirectory.
For the other problem - having to respond while it displays all the graphs on screen, even though running in 'noninteractive' or 'batch' mode:
helps, insofar as the graphs just flash by on screen without requiring any user interaction.
I found that if I also specify:
then I don't even see anything on screen at all, which is great, although then I get a duplicate set of graphics files in (by default) a 'sasgraph' subdirectory (I think that can be changed using the GSFNAME= option).
If I could have
that would be perfect. But what I have now is good enough for my purposes.
